Presented by Philanthropy New York’s Special Committee PHILANTHROPY CONNECTS.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:  All funders with an interest in strengthening the sector.

Join New York City’s Deputy Mayor for Health and Human Services for an overview of six initiatives now being designed to strengthen the City’s nonprofit sector – efforts that require informed and participatory funders in order to succeed.

One of the six initiatives calls for a data vault that holds common organizational documents required in city contracts and many private grant applications (e.g., IRS tax-exempt certification, insurance forms, etc.). A data vault of this kind would reduce the redundant submission of paper forms to multiple funding sources.  Progress is underway through the City's procurement reform process, and a workgroup is being headed by Blue Ridge Foundation New York’s Matt Klein, who will be on hand to describe this promising effort.
